If you’ve ever had a student that is gullible and easily picked on, you know that it can get out of hand pretty quick. I use this social story to reiterate to my students that telling other kids to say or do mean things is a form of bullying behavior. We all like to joke around and laugh with our friends and sometimes things get carried a little too far. For the student with social cognitive deficits, they may do just about anything to get their peers attention. This social story hits the point pretty quickly about this unacceptable behavior. We talk about “taking advantage” of other kids when we do this. Often times this behavior gets swept under the rug, but not in my class. I like to nip it in the bud. I always tell my kids, “Think to yourself, if I would be mad if I saw you doing this, then YOU SHOULD NOT be doing this.” If it is actively happening, I always pre-correct my students during the more free play times with this social story.
